Here, I am wearing an off the shoulder blouse by Japna. The fitted ones are really cute too with high waisted shorts and skirts, but if you’re more into flowy tops, then a simple pair of low rise shorts can balance out the outfit. Leggings or skinny jeans would also pair well with this shirt. These shorts are from H&M for $12.99.
I also love these sandals by Rouge Helium from Joyce Leslie. I think slides are a little too chunky for me, but these simple sandals have straps that are more fitted. Overall, this was a really casual summer outfit that’s probably more appropriate when the weather is a little cooler with the oversized sleeves from the top. Hope you enjoyed this quick post.
For today’s profile, I profiled Kelorn Francis and it’s because her blog focuses on shoes and I’ve been loving colored sandals and heels for the summertime. Check out her blog here: https://kaytheshoeist.com/

Meet Kelorn Francis: My name is Kelorn Francis and I live in New York. I am and IT Analyst with a love for fashion, a passion for style and an obsession with shoes.
When it comes to fashion, here’s my philosophy:
When it comes to fashion, there are trends that I will definitely wear but it has to work for me. Meaning that the fit and design have to work for my body type. You will not find me in every trend that is in season but you will find me in the ones that can depict my personality and reflect my personal style. Brands and price are not the objective for me. When I see a top or a pair of shoes, my mind starts going at how I can style that item. My philosophy on fashion is “it’s all about the shoes”. I do not care how much your outfit costs or what brand it is, if you are not wearing the right pair of shoes your look will be graded an F.
My favorite summer trend right now is…..
My favorite trends this summer if the peasant tops especially those that are off the shoulder. I love that they are sexy without being tight and fitted. It seems like these days that your clothes have to be skin for it for to referred to as sexy but these blouse ooze sexy with just the hint of your shoulder.
When I’m in a rush, my go-to shoe is…..
When I am in a rush, my favorite go to shoes is a pair of red pumps. I have about 5 pairs in different style and shades of red but anyone can save the day. Besides being my favorite color, the pop of color adds life to your look and red heels always turn heads.
Most people tend to go with black when you have to grab and go but I go for color. I love love love wearing black but when I put some color on it lifts my mood and no one can tell that my outfit was put together in under 5 minutes.
I was very busy in college with classes and finals, so I barely had time to share my outfits from school. Here is a compilation of some of my favorite looks from the school year that I managed to find on my phone.
Forever 21 Romper: $12.99: I loved this romper because it was super comfortable to wear out, and then it was really cute during the day to wear with a cardigan and converse sneakers.
Rue 21 Sweatshirt: $5.00 Forever 21 Leggings: $3.99: I loved how casual this look was. The sweatshirt was perfect for class and it looks a little bit more put together with leggings and converse.
Black Knitted Crop Top: $8.99: I loved this crop top because of the high neckline and the fit. It pairs well with high-waisted jeans because it isn’t too cropped to the point that my stomach was too exposed.
Lizard Printed Blouse from H&M: $12.99 Black Trouser Leggings from H&M: $9.99: This was one of my favorite buys from the spring. The reptile printed blouse is fun and quirky. The pastel and neutral colors also gave the look a more spring vibe.
